Celebrate World Vegan Day with Soul Warming Chili

This week Becca is taking a break from political scandals to guest blog for me. Check out her blog for some juicy scandals involving some of Canada’s most well-known politicians.

It’s November and the cold weather seems to be here to stay, but one of the best ways to keep warm is with a warm meal. In celebration of one of World Vegan Day, I want to share my favourite soul warming vegan chili recipe!

This is a protein packed chili that is super easy to make and so filling. Normally, when I make this I use a clear your sinuses hot amount of spice (which isn’t a bad thing this time of year), but you can adjust the recipe to fit your taste preferences. This recipe makes  eight servings so it’s great for meal prep.

This is a chili, so feel free to change and amend the ingredients based on what’s in your cupboards.

How to make the vegan chili:

Step 1. In a large pot over medium heat add oil, garlic, onion, pepper, jalapeno, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and cumin. Sauté until onions are translucent.

 

Step 2. Add tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, vegetable broth, water, quinoa, and mixed beans. Bring to a boil.

 

Step 3. Cover and reduce to a simmer until quinoa is almost cooked (25 minutes)

 

Step 4. Add corn, lime juice and oregano. Cover and let simmer for another 3-5 minutes.

 

Step 5. Allow to cool for a couple minutes and serve.

 

What’s your favourite vegan meal?

  1. I’ve been looking for a good vegan chilli recipe to try out, so I’ll give this one a go. The directions are easy to follow. I’m curious: have you tried adding ground soy (ground beef imitation) at all and, if so, how did it work out?

    It’s cool that you tied this into World Vegan Day: how timely! My favourite vegan recipe at the moment is a tofu stir fry.
